POTUS' Day Ahead: Channeling Teddy Roosevelt

Good Morning from the White House. The president travels to Osawatomie (trying saying that three times fast), Kansas Tuesday to channel his inner Teddy Roosevelt and deliver another address on the economy. It was in Osawatomie in 101 years ago that Roosevelt made the case for a "square deal," a series of policies aimed at strengthening the country's middle class in another era when the highest-income owners far outpaced the rest of the labor force.

The president returns to the White House Tuesday evening.

    Re; Kyra's panel comments about Obama channelling T. Roosevelt. Please tell the brother that T. R. and F.D.R. were two different men from two different parties in two different eras.

    Obama, Holder, and Napolitano should all be in jail,
    for the illegal sale of 2,500 weapons, to the Mexican drug cartels
    ... as well as the subsequent COVER UP of these crimes ...
    and the murder of American border agent, Brian Terry.

    If anything, Obama, Holder, and Napolitano,
    should be held to a higher standard, than the rest of us.

    In the days of Watergate, the Press demanded, and
    got JUSTICE for the American people. Today, the
    media looks the other way, or helps in the cover up !!!

      BREAKING NEWS !!! ...

      Obama appointed two devout Muslims to homeland security posts.

      Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim,
      as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
      DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim,
      who was born in Damascus , Syria , as ADC National Executive Director
      as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

      NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified
      as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...?
      hhhmmm......Just wondering.

      Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security-positions?
      Doesn't this make you feel safer already?
      That should make our homeland much safer, huh!?

      Was it not "Devout Muslim men" that flew planes into U..S. buildings on 9/11?
      Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood ?
